Overview
CIEE - Seville Business and Society

This program is administered by the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), a 200-university academic consortium. Purdue University has been a member of CIEE since 1972.

The Business and Society Program in Sevilla is designed for students with advanced Spanish language ability who want to understand Spain's economy and business management principles in the context of the European Union. Courses in business, economics, social sciences and the humanities are available.

Sevilla is the political, religious, cultural and intellectual capital of Andalucia. The city's cathedral and the royal Alcazar Palace, located in the historic city center, exhibit the influences of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures that flourished in Sevilla until the late 15th century. Ferdinand and Isabella sent Columbus, Magellan and Vespucci to the new world from the banks of the Guadalquivir River.

The Business and Society program is located in the School of Economics and Business of the University of Sevilla. After a three-week intensive language course, students enroll in four courses, a combination of specially designed CIEE courses and regular business school courses. Students can also gain practical work experience through internships. Eligibility for the internships is determined by the student's language ability, job skills, background and professional attitude. In the past students have been placed with organizations such as Xerox, DHL, AT&T, American Express and Vodaphone.

Program participants live with Spanish-speaking local families where they take all of their meals. Homestays are located within a thirty-minute commute of the university.
